I have a remote server that needs to access my mysql database a lot. So I figured instead of sending a bunch of remote mysql commands it would be more effecient to sync the database to the remote server. Is there a program that easily does this and that I can configure to only sync specified tables and possibly columns?

Mysql offers replication, which should do the trick.

Is there a nice frontend for configuring it? – Will Mar 23 '11 at 11:19
yes - vi is very nice and runs on nearly every operating system (you didn't say which you are using) – symcbean Mar 23 '11 at 13:48
